#UGA S Shawn Williams said he’s returning for senior season: "I’ll be back to be an All-American." Says he's happy Grantham plans to stay.— Marc Weiszer (@marcweiszer) January 12, 2012
Williams played in all 14 games as a junior in 2011 and finished with 72 total tackles and four interceptions. His return combined with the return of Bacarri Rambo should give the Bulldogs one of the best safety tandems in the country next season.
Georgia's defense made big strides in the second year under defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. His return for year three as well as the return of players like Rambo and Williams should have Georgia highly ranked going into next season.
